Hector Mario Chavez was killed one Saturday night in March when he was suddenly mowed down by a speeding motorcycle. And there's more, I can't think of more cowardly things to do than get in an accident and cause someone harm, and then just run away. But that's exactly what happened on Saturday, March 26th.
